Alessandro Moggi, the agent of Lazio star Ciro Immobile, underlined his client’s qualities ahead of the upcoming season.

The 32-year-old Italian striker is coming off a great campaign under Maurizio Sarri, where he scored 27 goals in 31 Serie A matches, enough to see him pick up four Capocannoniere titles. Immobile will be hoping to pick up a record fifth title in the upcoming campaign.

Speaking to Radio Marte (via LazioNews24), Moggi discussed the qualities of Immobile and his ambitions ahead of the new season.

He has to break all records and become a legend. What Ciro is building shows that he is the most important Italian striker of the last 20 years.

He is also important on an international level. He is aiming to win the Capocannoniere award for the fifth time.

In addition to being a great striker, he is also a great man and you will see that this year he will be there fighting to win the goalscoring award.

Following his arrival in 2016, Immobile has gone on to become the clear talisman in the Lazio squad, being a leader on and off the pitch. The 32-year-old, who was named captain following the departure of Senad Lulic, is likely to close out his career with the Roman club, becoming a legend in the process.

Over the last six years, Immobile has made 259 appearances across all competitions for the Biancocelesti. In that time, he’s scored 182 goals and provided 46 assists.
